The Department of State has published four new editions to the Limits in the Seas series, a collection of studies that examines the maritime claims and boundaries of selected coastal States from a geographic and legal perspective. The Department of State began these studies in 1970 and has published 131 editions to date.
The four studies published today focus on archipelagic claims made by the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, Dominican Republic, the Republic of Cabo Verde, and the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Each study analyzes a State’s maritime claims and their conformity with international law, as reflected in the Law of the Sea Convention.
These studies, and the rest of the series, are available to the public on the Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs website at http://www.state.gov/e/oes/ocns/opa/c16065.htm.
In the coming months, additional studies in the series will be published.
The Office of Website Management, Bureau of Public Affairs, manages this site as a portal for information from the U.S. State Department.
